There are additional Fellowships available to Sacatar through a diversity of partners.

Unlike the Fellowships offered directly by Sacatar, which are available to artists of all disciplines and nationalities, Partner Fellowships may be restricted by nationality, discipline, age or other criteria. Following is a list of the organizations that provide Residency Fellowships in partnership with the Instituto Sacatar and/or the Sacatar Foundation.  See the Sacatar Deadlines webpage for all announced deadlines.

Applications may be submitted from April 16 to May 31, 2018. Artists will compete for one of three residency awards, one of which is to the Instituto Sacatar for a residency to be scheduled in 2019.


Djerassi Resident Artists Program: Once a year, Sacatar nominates former Fellows from South America for a residency at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program. Djerassi similarly nominates former Djerassi Fellows to participate in a residency at Sacatar. Dates vary.


Pro Helvetia: COINCIDENCIA is the cultural exchange programme with South America under the auspices of Pro Helvetia. Its aim is to strengthen networks between Swiss and South American cultural institutions and arts professionals and to set up partnerships. COINCIDENCIA thus constitutes a privileged point of access to the contemporary South American arts scene.


Ateliers des Artistes en Exil: Through aa-e, Sacatar offers residences in Brazil for refugee artists who, because of their nationality, are prohibited from traveling to the United States.



Acervo da Laje is a cultural center located on the periphery of Salvador, founded in 2011 as the result of research into the little known art created by those living on the socio-economic edges of the greater metropolitan area. It is a place of affirmation and resistance. ACERVO opens its doors to those who wish to collaborate in a spirit of mutual enrichment with local artists.
